I really liked the headboard tank. It looked great. The spade tank was very clever as well, but it seemed a little small for the load.

Honestly the spade tank did it in for me that tank was way overstocked way to fast and the mandarin is more then likely doomed to a slow death by starvation. They may say they love the fish but if that were true they wouldn't be sending fish to their deaths :/

I have thought the same thing watching that show, they just dump fish into the tank straight from a big garbage can? And not like 2-4 fish at a time but like 50!? I would like to hear follow ups on their tanks and how many are still up and running with live fish....

I may have touched on this before but maybe it's only common sense in my eyes. This is not a mom and pops lfs nor are these people who buy the tanks are ordinary fish keepers. The people who can afford these custom tanks obviously A. Can afford to pay someone to continue maintenance on these aquariums or B a random person who truly loves taking care of fish n maintain there own. I pretty sure it's A. And if the people from tanked didn't know what they were doing do you honestly think they would still be in the business of making these tanks. I mean in the other episode they went to a past clients house took the shark that outgrew its tank rehomed it in another and let the person know when it outgrews it's new home they would take care of it. I like the show an if I want to learn something about this hobby I go on the Internet or read a book. I watch the how for entertainment purposes not to make dumb assumptions. I won't say that some peoples concerns may not be warranted but again like I said earlier use some common sense or change the channel.

Honestly, I love watching the show for purely entertainment purposes. The people on the show are funny, the fish in the tank are nice-looking, and you can't deny that there are some very nice-looking tanks. It's really not meant for educational purposes.

Let's keep this on topic folks. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

I think we can all agree that this show is just entertainment, and nothing else.

I wish they were more detailed on plumbing, appliances, and products. I know they make an entertaining show but it would b nice if it were more educational to fellow fish keepers.its not like they need to keep any big secrets. No one who pays for one of those tanks does anything but feed the fish. They wouldn't lose any business to competition. The work they do is an art by the way. They know what they are doing.

Has anyone noticed that they have been putting fake PLANTS in their saltwater setups? IM glad they talked about cycling this episode even though it was "instant" cycling.
